I wish to feel smaller
Under your sheets.
I wish for the whole truth
Every time you speak.
I'm thinkin' about how you care half as much for me
As I watch you arrive, smoke cigarettes, sleep...

And I guess it doesn't matter what I say or what I seem
You stuck what I felt for you in the pocket of your jeans
Ignoring me the morning after
Isn't enough
And I swear I'm gonna cry.
I'm sick of tryin' to be tough.

And my blood won't stick
To the confines of my veins.
And your heart
Is gonna tear mine away.

And I wish to feel smaller under your hands,
Though you seem satisfied as you slip mine
Down your pants.
And I'm thinkin' about how you care half as much for me
As you lift up my shirt after asking politely.

And I guess it doesn't matter what I am or pretend to be
'Cause it's her you'll always love and it's her I'll always envy.
I want to end this now so dreams of you won't keep me up.
But I swear I'm gonna cry.
I'm sick of tryin' to be tough.

And my blood won't stick
To the confines of my veins.
And your heart
Is gonna tear mine away.

And it's hard to find
What I want
When it's buried beneath the biggest rock.
I could pay lots of money
To help lift it with machines
But I'm not sure you'd cooperate.
Not sure you'd come clean.

And I wish to feel smaller
Under your sheets.
I wish for the whole truth
Every time you speak.
And I'm thinkin' about how you care half as much for me
As I watch you arrive, smoke cigarettes, sleep.

And I guess it doesn't matter what I say or what I seem
You stuck what I felt for you in the pocket of your jeans.
Ignoring me the morning after isn't enough
And I swear I'm going to cry.
I'm sick of tryin' to be tough.

Yeah, I swear I'm gonna cry.
I'm sick of tryin' to be tough.

And my blood won't stick
To the confines of my veins.
And your heart
Is gonna tear mine away.

Is gonna tear mine away

    Its exactly what happened to me and my friend. I cared about him so much and even told him but he only used me for sex. I loved him but he moved on to someone better than me...

    When you care for someone, so much more than they care for you. You love them, but you know they're no good for you. Eventually, your heart will break under the pressure of knowing the truth. But its so hard to admit it to yourself. They don't care half as much as you..

    The story of my life. Always wishing, 8 years now. And who knows if the wish will ever see the light of day.

    She's in love with him but he only uses her. And she is jealous of the girl that he is actually in love with.

    She is in love with a man who already has a girl, yet shell settle for even a small part of him just to feel loved.
